Want to write better? Want to get published? Attending pricey, academic-style, lecture-hall writer's conferences won't quite get you there, no matter how good the bagels are. Here's what will: a comfortable, congenial environment where you can meet other writers, editors and publishers. You need to speak with the people who make editorial decisions, as well as with others who are trying to perfect their craft, just like you.
You'll find this at Conversations & Connections, a conference devoted to giving you practical advice on getting published.
Conversations and Connections is a one-day writer's conference organized by Barrelhouse magazine and sponsored by the Johns Hopkins University Master of Arts in Writing program. This year's keynote is award winning writer Marisa de los Santos.
Since 2007, Conversations and Connections has provided a friendly and supportive environment where writers can connect with other writers and editors. We've been lucky to have accomplished writers like Mary Gaitskill, Stewart O' Nan, Matthea Harvey, Steve Almond, J. Robert Lennon, Sam Lipsyte, Fiona McCrae, and others as our keynote speakers.
